Madden 12 Images Display New Kick Meter and Cheerleaders

A couple off-screen images of Madden NFL 12 have made their way out on Twitter. One shows off a punt formation and most notably a new kick meter reminiscent of the PS2 days and has been accompanied by some talk of progressive lighting. The second spotlights the cheerleaders (which were also seen in the debut teaser trailer) in a sideline cut scene.

    • TheTruth

  • Cgm110

    so one of the bright spots of madden 11 (the scoreboard) gets downgraded smh

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000295534671 Jared Baxter

      I like the scored board in the top left.

    • Anonymous

      yeah the bottom one was great.. looked just like NBC/CBS and that makes sense with Gus and Chris.. now they have a FOX type scoreboard.

      • Cal

        Madden 2010-2011 was NBC presentation. 2012 is CBS presentation. It’s just that nasty gray/silver, needs to be blue.

    love the 2nd one but not to happy about the kicking meter change

  • Anonymous

    I know it’s early yet, but it’s gonna take more than a kick meter and cheerleaders to get me back into buying Madden.

  • Mykal94

    looks like the last gen maddens which were good. i hope the game plays similar and theyre not just doing it to remind us of when the game was playable.

    Hard to make much of these but in the 1st pic it looks like the lighting & shading is different. Hopefully its a sign of Progressive Lighting. If they go one more year without it it’ll be a shame. Things like Progressive Lighting should be a given in all football games in this day & age.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000295534671 Jared Baxter

      I’m sure progressive lighting is in. NCAA 12 has it.

      • Alex

        The sucky thing is that if Madden had been like NCAA the last few years, people wouldn’t be so hesitant to buy it. They need to make me really happy for me to end up buying this game.

  • kdarnell

    Maybe the cheerleaders prevent CBs intercepting passes without even looking or 88 speed CBs keeping up with 99 speed receivers…I can’t wait:))))

  • Josh

    Also hopefully we have custom camera angles back this year. EA needs to understand that the more options & customization we have the better. Don’t force people to play how you want them to play. Give us more options & the game will sell more guaranteed.

  • ChadBrad

    10 bucks says we get cheerleader booby jiggle before cornerbacks that don’t magically know the receiver’s route and make the cuts before the receiver does.

    • The Rock

      Cheer This Man great job sir well played well played… with that said, cheerleaders? cheerleaders? instead of showing us improved gameplay you show us cheerleaders? really EA SMH.

  • Skyflame21

    Yay! More fluff without addressing any of the actual errors that needs corrected. Typical MADDEN!

    • Thrash

      Not like we have 4 more months of info to come. Its fluff but its stuff that should be in and its nice to see it in. Dont go criticizing already when all we know is about kicking and cheerleaders.

  • Lonnie

    that three year plan is coming together i see,cheerleaders this year,halftime show next year,views from the goodyear blimp the third year and gameplay improvements? lets see that will be in the next three year plan right?

    • Yezurrrrrr

      wow.. already??? you JUST heard about the news of new management making a 3 year plan and within 24 hours, you’re complaining about a screenshot that the new management obviously wasn’t even apart of??? you Madden bashers are something else

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000295534671 Jared Baxter

        I know, they don’t bother to inform themselves. April 28th is the release of the Gameplay blog. We’ve known this for a month or so now.

  • Hungryandrew

    What gives? Every year they introduce a different kicking meter scheme, make up your minds Madden team!

  • Def

    This is finally the year it all comes together

    HA !

  • Yezurrrrrr

    look at the thighs on them cheerleaders.. wooooooo-weeee!!!

    • http://twitter.com/mattdabearsfan Matthew Duncan

      I think theres nothing wrong with a girl with some big areas around them thighs …

    • Allmaddenking

      I said the same thing lmaooo

  • http://www.facebook.com/Coolio83 TJ Drwiega

    I want Tecmo Super Bowl cheerleaders (especially ones that wink at you)

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2BNOIBHBFICJEAPJLGHKK3WHPE DADDY WARBUCKS

    oh god, that ticker on the top of the screen gets in the way.

    kicking meter wont matter if it acts in the same way as the old meter……A to start, A for power, A again for accuracy.
    after a couple of games youre booming perfect 100% punts & kicks.

    make the kicking like APF 2k8 where it is right stick based and the place holder actually gets bad snaps and all.

  • Guest

    I enjoy the game every year. Its just a game and all the crying will not make a difference. Just enjoy it for what it is.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000295534671 Jared Baxter

      I know. At least we get an NFL football game to play. It may not be great, and lack a lot of requested features, but still.

    • LeftToHypeUpMadden

      We know this is you, Ian.

    • Def

      A football game where nobody blocks… just enjoy it

    • Therateup

      We can make a difference……. Just don’t buy it.

  • http://www.thematuregamer.blogspot.com MattColby

    You’d think that the company that develops the Tiger Woods game could use the same analog stick concept they use with the golf swing to make kicking more realistic and unpredictable. Just changing how the meter looks doesn’t change anything. But who knows, hopefully it will be better.

    Lighting does look better, though. Progressive lighting is a must nowaways.

  • http://twitter.com/vlnj13 vlnj13

    There is no way to tell if there is progressive lighting from stills :( obviously

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000295534671 Jared Baxter

      The lighting is clearly different from last years.

  • Swagger

    a kick meter they took out years ago and cheerleader cut scnes?! This madden is a MUST BUY. Thank you EA!

  • Geeznutz

    Ok so far we have a gimmick onside kick feature, blades of grass,cheerleaders, a new kick meter,and new field goal camera………….by the way its only 4 months away from release….This is the joke that keeps on running Madden Next Gen…SMH!

    • Cal

      S.O.K., New Kicking Meters, New Scoreboard, New Grass, Cheerleaders, Improved Broadcast Mode camera angles, Progressive Lighting, New Equipment, More Plays, Hot & Cold Players, New physics, Better presentation, Dynamic Player Performance, X-Books, Player Personalities, Green stickers on helmets…. All of this is ruined because of horrible gameplay.

    I hope the teams like Giants and Steelers don’t have cheerleaders. However, they are probably generic so every team will have them

  • Wow

    Looks like the kick meter in madden 06 or something

  • Dude

    1st day buy for me now after seeing this

  • I’m not jeff Baines

    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK U EA FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

    The players look a little bigger or the field looks a little smaller, noticed it in the ncaa 12 pictures too imo.

      I’ve always felt that the players were too big for the field.

  • PETER MOORE, ESQ

    HELLO FOLKS! PETER MOORE HERE, THE EXECUTOR OF EXECUTIONS, THE SOLE PROPRIETOR OF THE PROPRIETORS, THE KING MAN FROM ENGLAND. OK MAYBE THAT’S A LITTLE TOO MUCH. WELL GOOD MORNING FOLKS AND LET ME FIRST SAY THAT I HOPE IAN CUMMINGS TOLD YOU GUYS ABOUT OUR NEW FEATURES COMING UP FOR MADDEN. IF NOT, IT DOESN’T MATTER BECAUSE HE’S NO LONGER WITH US LOL

    ANYWAYS, I’M SURE HE’S TALKED ABOUT THE EXCITING NEW FEATURES COMING UP SUCH AS NEW PLAYBOOKS, GRASS HAS A LOT MORE “CHARACTER”, CHEERLEADERS, ETC. IMO, I THINK THIS IS A BIG GAME CHANGER AND WILL CHANGE MADDEN FOREVER!

    I’LL ADMIT, I’M BALD, FAR FROM AN NFL FAN (I THOUGHT THE NEW YORK GIANTS WERE A BASEBALL TEAM), AND I’M FROM ENGLAND WHERE FOOTBALL IS NON EXISTENT, BUT I ASSURE YOU GUYS THAT I KNOW WHAT I’M DOING. I’M A BUSINESS EXECUTIVE AND I KNOW ABOUT BUSINESS MMMMKAY?

    SO DON’T FRET PEOPLE, IF YOU LIKE THESE NEWS, THEN YOU’LL LIKE WHAT’S UP AND COMING SUCH AS COACHES LOOKING A LOT MORE LIKE COACHES, THE ABILITY TO ADD 3 MORE YEARS TO A COACHES CONTRACT, ETC ETC.

    UNTIL NEXT TIME FOLKS, PETER MOORE, PRESIDENT AND FOREVER RESIDENT OF EA!

  • Lewisbinnom

    im pretty excited to see there trying to please the community.looks good i hope it plays as good as it looks i cant wait

  • Lewisbinnom

    let’s hope madden 12 plays better than madden 11 trust me im just as sick of madden as the next man, but i really miss playing online against my peers.this is the last draw if it sucks ass this year im gone retire from playing madden,let’s keep our fingers crossed,its easy to blame it all on ian cummins,but theres got to be more to it.shout out to my brothers still playing nfl2k5,peace

  • Skihawks

    Although the pics are a blurry, they look pretty good. With NCAA 12 looking strong, Tiger Woods 12 being arguably one of the best golf titles in years, let’s hope the flagship franchise can be lifted to new heights.
